I am trying to watch Magic Cuty and am very frustrated. All I see are Xfinity ads. Does "tracking" mean that you can watch the show? Plerase send instructions.

Hi Pam, please refer to the official instructions above. I'm not familiar with the "Image Downloading" message you're referring to.

Do I have to go to HULU or one of the links provided or does the episode automatically start.


I am trying to watch an episode of Rizzoli and Isles. I watched one previously and did not have to do anything and did not have to sign up for anything. I cannot get to the episode to start watching.

I click on play and nothing happens.


Was trying to watch "Unnatural History 1/1". When I press where it says play, the screen blinks and returns to where it was. Running an AMD box, Win7, and FireFox 23.

Please Help Me Watch 2 Specific Shows !!.


I can't watch the videos and have read your responses so I'm just going to ask that you go directly to these 2 specific shows:
1. Hazel (of the 1960's - she's a housekeeper played by Shirley Booth) and I want to start on S1 E1 & go to end; and
2. Please Don't Eat the daisies - also of the 1960's (NOT the movie with Doris Day, although I do want to watch that too at some point.
This has been getting VERY frustrating as I have been trying every day for over a week & your replies to others with similar problems I'm either not understanding.
Is it Sidereel programs themselves? or is it my computer?

Hi Fash! As long as the viewing link you're trying to watch is not labeled with a flag that doesn't pertain to your region, you should have no trouble viewing from Canada!

Can't find full episodes of Warehouse 13.


I specifically joined sidereel in order to watch past episodes of Warehouse 13. However the only thing I am finding are clips through HULU unless I want to pay to watch. Why aren't full episodes available? Please advise. cmn4242@msn.com

Hi Connie! While Hulu Plus may be an example of a Featured paid option (designated with a "$" icon next to the link), make sure to click the "search links" button to view the full list of submitted viewing options for any particular episode.

Hi Angelique! Keep in mind that you don't technically watch TV or movie content on SideReel directly, so we'd never interrupt your viewing on an external site in order to make you log in again. Are you sure you don't have SideReel confused with the site you're actually watching the content from?

Hi Dana! Welcome to SideReel! No, unfortunately you cannot watch a show live from SideReel. SideReel simply provides a place for users like you to submit and share places to watch TV online – most of which do not provide a live-streaming option.
Let me know if I can help you with anything else!

Im just wondering why so many of the shows that I want to watch only have a summary of each episode & I can not watch? Also can I watch PARENTHOOD season 4 on your page?

With over 400 of the same question, one would expect it to be answered by now. How do I play the video? I am at the page for the show. I have found all the episodes. No matter which episode I click, all I get is a black box with a circle of white circles.

Now HOW DO WE GET THE VIDEOS TO PLAY!?
